My DACS payment (filed claim on my own) landed in my bank account today. As always, it makes a very nice Xmas present. 

 

Mine went up slightly from last year. How about yours?

A nice annual bonus to be sure.  Mine was the about same; ~$10 more than last year.

"It is for the year before, isn't it?"

 

 

it's for the cumulative number for all years up to and including the previous year

I let Alamy do mine last year, which was the first time I've had a DACS payment. From what I've read in the FAQ's, Alamy will automatically have filed my DACS claim this year too. They haven't emailed me about it though, so maybe I should already have checked with them. Does anyone know please if they'll do it automatically this year?

 

I'd expect mine to be higher than last year, but with only 20 sales in 2015 I won't be getting much. I was actually surprised I got as much as $25 last year for 2014, as I only licensed 4 images in 2014. It is for the year before, isn't it?

Every artist who makes a successful application is guaranteed a minimum of £25.

I think if you let Alamy file for you that you will probably see it added to the January payment.

Just dropped in. About 1/3 up from last year. :-)

Sorry if this is a dumb donkey question, but is there a link on Alamy here where one can apply for DACS?

I am afraid I may be missing out on a few extra bucks by not being signed up

 

Thanks in advance!

I'm pretty sure it stays automatic until you'll notify Alamy that you no longer wish to. Last year it was reflected in the "Balance of Account" on the 17th of December.

Just checked bank and the payment is in! Down on last year as paid to me but that will be due the plunge of the pound against the euro. I converted both back to UK pounds at the exchange rate on days of exchange and this years is an actual good increase

I received mine this morning.   :D

A lot more than last year, thanks to the fact that I moved up to the next bracket.  Very good.

I self-claim and was way down this year. I suspect that this was because while I claim for book usage which doesn't change year on year, my editorial publications on Alamy were down.

"my editorial publications on Alamy were down."

 

editorial, as in newspapers, don;t count towards DACS anyway..

and any magazine usages (in publications which have ISSN's) are carried over, culminatively, just like books

Mine in today and up on last year.

 

Self claim except for TV use which I allow Alamy to sort for me.

My DACS payment is up 27% from last year.  I suppose it is all cumulative!  I am a happy bunny.... er.... marmot.... :lol:

Magazines are what I meant which is why I'm baffled about the drop. I'll give them a call soon to see about the drop.

Did it myself for the third time in a row. Got about US $75, around the same as last year (they took out VAT or it'd be more, but it's $85 each year to file with the IRS to get what you need to send to HMS Revenue and not have VAT withheld, so it wasn't worthwhile filing the non-resident tax papers). I had more magazine uses but not enough to get me into the next bracket. Lots of my UK licenses via Alamy are newspapers so no help. I had some book sales from elsewhere, which is why I self-claimed, especially as I'd already done it twice before. 

 

It arrived in my bank on Monday. Looking forward to the day that it's worth it to file to get VAT refunded. 

 

Merry Christmas!
